Whosoever therefore resists the power, resists the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves judgment.
All Commentaries on Romans 13:2 Go To Romans 13
Paul writes this against those who believe that because of their own power they cannot be apprehended and so therefore they can play fast and loose with the law. He shows them that this is the law of God and that those who by some subterfuge escape it for a time will not escape God’s judgment. Commentary on Paul’s Epistles.
